With those speeds, I guess it will be Vista Readyboost capable? Can anybody confirm.

Very good price, I was looking over at eBuyer the other day and play.com have much better prices. I forgot to go through QuidCo though, doh!

Please let me know if I'm asking an obvious question, but does Play.Com's desription "No drivers needed for Windows 2000/ME and XP and MacOS 8.6 or later, 9.X and 10.1.2 or above" imply that you will need drivers for Vista? Or is it more likey that that they're using a description that's so old, Vista wasn't launched?

Ta,

The latter I would presume! "Mass Storage" drivers are a standard for even vista

This one is a re-branded Integral USB drive. If you look that up, you'll see it does have the quoted 7mb write speed.

play.com do a couple of different 'own brand' USB drives. Those are slower, e.g. the one posted here yesterday which is 3mb write:

Have a read of the 85 reviews of the 4gb version on play.com. Seems to work fine with Vista.

1000x more space for less than 20% of the price... There's technology for you.
